The NBA Players will begin practicing at the Preseason leg as a lengthy Regular season awaits. In this fixture, the Miami Heat are going to challenge the Atlanta Hawks. More about MIA vs ATL Dream11 will be given below.
The NBA Preseason is not as competitive as the regular season. It is more like a warmup before the real deal begins in the Regular Season. As a result, a lot of bench players see a lot of action and some hopefuls look to make the roster cut. Because of this, talking about game predictions is an exercise in futility.’
In the off-season, Miami Heat made a marquee signing of Kyle Lowry and it is a major pickup in the absence of Victor Oladipo. The Heat also acquired Markieff Moriss and PJ Tucker to inject some veteran presence at the Forward position. The rest of the squad is pretty much the same as last season but Miami will hope Butler remains healthy this season.
Atlanta Hawks didn’t make any major moves in the offseason except extending Capela’s contract. The team did insert Delon Wright to attain depth at the guard position but apart from that, the team had a quiet off-season. It is largely understandable since the team was just two wins away from making the Finals last season.

Jimmy Butler has led the team from the front for a few years.
Trae Young is among the elite players in the Association.
Jimmy Butler may play around 15-20 minutes considering it is a preseason game but he has led the team in scoring and assists in the last few seasons.
Young was only second to Westbrook in Assists per game last season and has led Atlanta in points and assists in most of the games. He is always a candidate for the Super/Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
Bam was the leading rebounder for the Heat last season. His growth will determine how far Miami reach this season.
Lowry brings veteran play and hustle to the Miami team. He is also well-adept at scoring and dishing out assists. Always an interesting player in the Fantasy scenario.
Capela led the league in rebounds during the last season. He can get a ton of points in the paint and is an intimidating defender. WILL NOT PLAY IN THIS GAME.
Many experts are expecting Herro to have a break-out season. He will be huge in Miami’s schemes this season.
Bogdanovic was impressive in the second half of the Regular Season and Playoffs with his scoring. He is a huge piece for Atlanta moving ahead.
One of the most elite three-point shooters in the league.
Will be interesting how one of the most athletic players in the league develops.
Didn’t get many chances in a forward-heavy Lakers lineup. May seize regular minutes in Heat.
The all-around player can act as a stabilizer. WILL NOT PLAY IN THIS GAME.
